Arm or Leg Pain in Erie?
The shoulder and hip joints are two of the most mobile and frequently used joints in the body. They are also a frequent site of injury and pain for many people we see in our Erie chiropractic clinic. From overuse to sports injuries, the causes are many, and the results range from slight discomfort to complete immobilization. The following article from Live Your Life Chiropractic gives information on some of the most common issues that lead to shoulder and leg pain, as well as a description of how chiropractic adjustments can help to reverse it.
While many people think of chiropractors for neck and back pain, they don’t always think of chiropractors when it comes to other joints. The hip is important for walking, bending, and almost any leg movement. If you have chronic hip pain, it can become hard to get around. Arthritis, sciatica, and swelling of the hip have all been shown to be alleviated by chiropractic care. Treatment ensures that all parts of the joint are moving correctly while decreasing swelling and pressure in the surrounding area. Dr. Sam will closely look at all structures surrounding the hip to determine what the cause of the problem is and decide the best course for treatment!
The knee is important for some of the most basic of daily activities. When we have knee pain, things like walking, bending down to pick something up, and even lying in bed at night can become very difficult to do. A chiropractor will look at the surrounding joints and soft tissue to diagnose where the problem is coming from. Treatment may involve an adjustment to one of the joints of the knee, the ankle, the hip, or even the low back. Icing, stretches, and certain exercises might also be given to the patient to help relax or strengthen different muscles. Dr. Sam will closely assess the area and determine the best course for treatment!
Chiropractic Treatment for Arm and Leg Pain
Due to the complexity of the joints and the vast number of possible causes of your leg or arm pain, it is important to have a professional evaluation to determine the source. Using a combination of a thorough review of your medical history, a physical examination, and advanced imaging techniques, a chiropractor can get a comprehensive picture that will lead to the root cause of your pain.
